In present times, the widespread presence of the mobile communication devices has led to a noteworthy rise in the frequency and scope of IMSI Catcher usage by various government officials and agencies. These devices are utilized by them, mainly to track the cell phones of people under inspection.
Let’s understand what they are and how Stratign’s 5G IMSI Catcher Solution can further help in this regard.
What is an IMSI Catcher?
IMSI stands for International Mobile Subscriber Identity and is an exclusive number that discovers a cell phone SIM card in GSM cell phone systems. For upholding network security, IMSI numbers are commonly broadcasted only when a linkage to a new cell tower is built by the phone handsets. In simple words, IMSI-Catchers allow the LEA’s to recognize your location or to search for who is in each & every geographic location and at what time. They can also be used to intercept cellphone conversations, data and text messages with the upgradation of the system with a decryption unit and a trans-receive unit.
5G IMSI Catcher – Know more via Stratign!
The 5G IMSI Catcher from Stratign is designed to covertly collect basic identities from 5G mobile phones working within its coverage area without the knowledge of the service providers and the phone users. This will allow the organizations to identify the existence of the target in their zone of operation.
The system scans the environment to look for and discover all the networks in the locality and seize the signatures of all calls being carried out in the area. It then creates a fake 5G cell tower (based on the operator selection) with the best operational parameters picked up from the network.
Main capabilities of the 5G IMSI Catcher
The advanced 5G IMSI Catcher system from Stratign is designed to detect presence of various handsets with an output power up to 100W for extensive ranges of up to 5 kilometers. Also, when it comes to location finding, Stratign’s 5G IMSI Catcher system can force a targeted smartphone to respond either with its precise location via GPS or with the signal strengths of the mobile phone’s adjacent cell sites, facilitating triangulation established on the identified locations of these sites. Apart from the above, it displays potential targets on maps as well. Target location is demonstrated in a radius of highest probability parallel to system position on a map (offline / online) based on data from TA/RTT.
Further, it can also be used in conjunction with Stratign’s handheld direction finder which comes as optional. The system can secretly trace a target utilizing its dynamic base-station technology with a unique localization attribute where it involves sending a silent order to the target’s handset and making it communicate continuously.
What’s more? With the help of a combined Wi-fi adaptor, the system can be coordinated remotely and derive or capture IMSI numbers from neighboring smartphones, permitting to track and monitor individuals wirelessly. Furthermore, it can also be suitably integrated on the basis of various operational scenarios on vehicles / backpacks / static deployment. It encompasses the ability to function separately from any telecom network provider and doesn’t require SIM of any service provider. The addition of a deciphering unit enables the system to be upgraded to intercept calls and SMSs.
Built with military grade-casing, Stratign’s 5G IMSI Catcher system with advanced technology is capable to work in rough conditions & terrains as well. Lastly the system possesses the ability to be integrated with Stratign’s OSINT (Open-source intelligence) solution which in combination proves to be beneficial for spot-on social media profiling (via any social media channels) & enhanced locating and tracking progression of the potential target by attaining just the cell number and mobile data of the individual.
